Mayor Bloomberg’s group to run Gun Control Super Bowl ad, bashing NRA VIDEO

Watch the video, sponsored by the Michael Bloomberg-founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns, set to air during Super Bowl 2013 calling for stricter background checks on gun purchases and targeting the NRA directly.

“The NRA once supported background checks,” says a child in the ad. Later, the message appears on screen: “Background checks for all gun purchases. It’s time.”

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre told legislators at a Capitol Hill hearing this week that the current background check system is flawed and the requirements should not be expanded.

Critics are already up in arms over the use of children, exploiting them in this manner for political gains.
